KINCADE AND STATUS SADDLES... Evil Or Not??
 
Ive heard nothing but bad things about kinkade and status saddles, espeially how they are cheap and ruin horses backs.

Are they really all that bad?

any saddle can ruin a horses back, being ill fitted, bought a "cheap"saddle package once and ended up chucking it in the garbage with in a year.....problems with a cheap saddle ...low grade leather, bad stiching, my tree broke, was pulling off my sturrip leathers ( the only thing i could save from that piece of trash) and the bar cam off......i've be ridding in the same stubben for 15 years and would not trade it for the world

Thanks for that.. :)

We went and checked them out and they did look pretty dodgy tho...

they definitely are not an everyday, ride and grind kind of saddle.

i think that for what they are, they make a great occasional use or light use saddle, and it's nice for people on a budget to be able to afford.

but - - if you can afford just a little more, you enter into a whole new level and quality of saddles that are definitely worth their salt. :)

I have heard that Kincade saddles are crappy, but I have had two of their bridles (I gave one to a friend) and a breastplate w/ running martingale and they are really nice. =] I have had my bridle for almost 4 years and it still looks pretty new. I'm sure it would look a lot better if I cleaned it every now and then. Lol.
